The refrigerator/freezer makes a rumble noise when it shuts off


There are rubber isolation mounts under the compressor that get worn. What your hearing when the unit shuts off is the compressor shaking in the mount as the electricity to the run winding is shut off and the reverse torque twists the compressor in the mount to the point that it is hitting the mounting posts momentarily. Replacing the isolation mounts will stop the noise.

Constant loud noise when frig turns on/comes from bottom


when the compressor is running unplug the ref. and if you hear the noise coming from the compressor then
a ballance spring may be broken inside the compressor.

The compressor will run normally with a broken spring it will just be annoying when it shuts down.

My Kenmore refrigerator is making a loud noise when running and when it shuts off it makes a loud clunking noise. Also, it is running about every 10 minutes. The refrigerator is 7 years old.


it sounds like the compressor insides are loose and you will be needing a new compressor, but just check and make sure the rubber mounting feet on the outer compressor base where its mounted to the refrigerator base are all tight and the rubber shocks are all good

Refrigerator making a loud noise


You probably just need new mounts. They are the rubber feet that the compressor sits on.

Whirlpool top freezer refrigerator- compressor makes a loud noise


The compressor is that black casing you see at the bottom of your refrigerator - inside this sealed case is the motor assembly which stits on 3 or 4 springs that act like a cushion - you have a little gap at the bottom where the lubricating oil is present. Your springs have likely worn out and when the compressor shuts off the assembly is banging against the rigid casing make that loud "klonk" or bang noise. It IS normal for compressor to make some faint "tick-tick-tick...tick.....tick" when shutting off, but loud banging, bell sounds, etc, means the assembly is banging on the case from the inside - you can indeed live with the noise, your compressor will function normally, probably for months, or even years - it can also keep wearing out and one day the noise might get very loud (like a very high humming noise) - There is NOTHING that can be fixed, you either pay $400+ to change the compressor or buy a new refrigerator - If you DO replace a compressor usually the replacement will be noisier - Keep a thermostat inside your refrigerator at all time to make sure your compressor is still keeping your refrigerator and freezer cool.

Refrigerator making noise at bottom rear when shutting down.


This sounds like a compressor motor mount problem. Unfortunately, the only way to fix this is to change the entire compressor, which is something that only a trained technician can do- they will need to drain and recharge the freon. It can cause upward of $400 or more. Fortunately, your refrig will still work if you don't mind living with that sound.

Refrigerator makes lot of noise


based from your story. the noise could be coming from the compressor as it starts. compressor usually vibrates a lot when starting. it would last from a few seconds to a few minutes then would normalize as it sucked all the evaporator pressure down to its normal readings. you can check the rubber mountings of the compressor,you may need to replace them. also check for some tubings that may be rubbing or touching as the compressor vibrates. tighten alllso those mounting bolst of the compressor. that should solve your problem. if everything is done and still the same, the noise could be coming inside the compressor which there will be no solution but to replace the compressor. the cleaning that you did helped it a little bit because the vibration decreased a little coz it was able to breathe a little.

Kenmore Frig Noise


TD, sounds like your valve springs in the compressor let loose and it's banging on the side when shutting down and equalizing. The compressor has a 5 year warranty. This is more annoying than anything. If it's under warranty, have them replace it. If not, it's up to you whether you want to live with it. Catriver.
